“It’s a dreamy tune laden with rich atmospherics, thick bass, and killer vocals from Davis and Burleson. You might need another dose of caffeine after listening, though, if only because you’re likely to get hypnotized.”
– Prefix
Ki:Theory (multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter, Joel Burleson) announces new single “I Wanna Run,” as premiered on Prefix, the first of a string of singles leading up to the release of his album Kitty Hawk in 2012. “I Wanna Run” is set for release on November 29, and features the collaboration with his good friend Maura Davis from the widely adored indie band Denali. The album also features “Kitty Hawk,” a track that echoes the album title and gets you on your feet and to the dancefloor. The “I Wanna Run” single package also features remixes from Nick Warren and German house and techno producer Robert Babicz, taking Ki:Theory even further into the realm of electronic music, and thereby further expanding the range of his sound.
The inspiration for the Kitty Hawk album title came from a beach in Outer Banks, North Carolina where Joel grew up, and therefore drips with the weight of nostalgia and fond memories, as he always knew he would eventually make an album about his special place. In fact, the video for “I Wanna Run” was filmed on this very beach. As premiered on Consequence of Sound, the video for “I Wanna Run” captures Joel Burleson and Maura Davis in mysterious black and white imagery, the sentiment in their voices and lyrics reflected in the shadowy visual interpretation.

Ki:Theory will be opening for experimental electronic artist Baths on a string of dates this December, including a show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City.

12/02/11 Bowery Ballroom New York, NY

Ki:Theory’s sound is reminiscent of Radiohead, Aphex Twin, and captures the live raw energy of Nine Inch Nails, but nevertheless remains entirely unique, combining elements of electronic and indie/alternative genres in a fresh and poignant manner. His live performance is energetic, diverse, and inspiring, channeling the emotion and joy behind his music, and giving himself to the beat.
“Bring[ing] to mind Peter Gabriel, Radiohead or Nine Inch Nails, but it’s not a clone of anything.”
A classically trained singer, multi-instrumentalist, and talented producer, Ki:Theory has officially remixed Daft Punk for Tron: Reconfigured, Sasha, Queens of the Stone Age, Ladytron, UNKLE and Brazilian Girls, among others. His music is also consistently licensed and has appeared in various spots, such as a Shaun White TV spot and Audi and Converse advertisements.
“Ki:Theory is as comfortable producing organic, minimal pop tracks as he is re-configuring electro bangers.”
